Round Up

Hi everyone!

I hope you are having a wonderful day. Trying to read and get through all these books while silently buying more to add 😂

This time I had some pretty good ones and one DNF. But…

It is the week of gorgeous covers!!!!

I have adored each and every one of these books. Warner is amazing! He is the perfect blend of strong, broken and loving. So many questions answered and the love they have that keeps bringing them back together took my breath a couple of times. I am glad to see a little happiness before the war comes. Kenji is hilarious

I received a copy of this from Montlake Romance and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

I have never read a book by Sariah I didn’t like and this was no exception. A sweet romance about two people who had suffered and needed to see love. Logan was so funny and they really brought out the best in each other. Another win for Sariah!!

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. It started out a little slow but everyone seemed to love it.

I really enjoyed it!! The ending was totally unexpected and I can’t wait to get to book 2 and see how that happened

I absolutely can’t wait to read the last book. This was so exciting and I finally got a little romance. There was so much going on I couldn’t put it down. The way she effortlessly switches from the past to the present is amazing. Sometime in books this wears me out, but I have found the opposite true in this case. I can’t stop reading

I received a copy of this from Edelweiss and Sourcebooks in exchange for my honest review.

I wanted to love this.I had owned Furyborn for a while and when I got approved for Kingsbane, I had to jump right in.

Furyborn was long and I didn’t really like most of the characters. The ending was pretty good so I decided to try Kingsbane. Kingsbane was more of the same.

Super long and tedious. And again I disliked both of the main characters. They were cold and rude. They were awful to everyone who loved them. They claimed to love someone only to be kissing someone else on the next page. They were both very selfish in everything they did.

I made it to halfway and decided to give up.

Many will love this but it just wasn’t for me

This Month’s Round Up

Hello Everyone!! I have been reading and had not noticed I have not shared all my reviews! I have quite a few this time and some really good ones!

I received this from Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

This was very exciting and I couldn’t wait to finish it. Lots of action and a second chance romance. I am so glad I read it and will definitely read the next one.

Possible triggers: past drug abuse, past child abuse

A really different story. It had a very interesting plot and I enjoyed the hea.

A marriage therapist and a divorce lawyer meet when she takes over his office while he is on vacation. This book was cute and had a lot of funny banter. There were a few things I felt were not necessary but overall an interesting story

I received a copy of this from Berkeley and Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.

I adore Helen’s representation of autism, especially after reading how personal it is for her. Everyone is different and it is wonderful to see how important understanding and kindness is. Quan is a favorite character. My only fault is the amount of language. It seemed at one point to be on every page. I felt it unnecessary

I received this from Gallery,Threshold, Pocket books and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

There is a big wedding and the whole wedding party gets food poisoning and the only 2 who don’t are the brides twin and the grooms brother who don’t like each other. They end up taking the free honeymoon together and fall in love. I have heard such good things about Christina’s books but the only other one I have read was not my favorite. This one was so much fun!! The extending family members also made up a good cast.

What a cute book! Totally didn’t go in the direction I expected and I am so glad. Daisy was so fun and Miles was adorable. I am glad Ellie was redeemed a little too.

I absolutely adored the first book and was super excited to jump in to this one. It did not disappoint! The world was so exciting. I need Jude and Cardan to be together and stop whatever it is they are doing. And that ending??? What in the world?

This book was super long and it just kind of drug on for me. I don’t really feel invested in any of the characters personally. They all seem pretty selfish. We go back and forth between Rielle and Elliana the whole book, every other chapter. I don’t know if that played a part in my general let down of this book. I do plan to read the second book because I received a review copy and hope for the best

Ahhh….where to start!!! Taylor is absolutely amazing in the way she tells a story. She has so many characters and she gives them each a story and then manages to make everyone’s story come together. She makes you feel like you know them and you are going through things with them. You won’t be able to put it down. This wasn’t better than the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. Whether because i had such high standard after that book or the fact that it was so many characters written in interview style. It was still a wonderful story and the writing style sucks you in from page one. Amazing!!

Whew!! That was a lot to catch up on. Sorry it took so long. I will try to do better next time.

Wrap Up

Hi!!! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. I am so ready for it. This week I read 3 books and boy were they wonderful! I hope you will give them a chance.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

For The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

This is not usually the kind of book I read, but after seeing it everywhere and all the 5 star reviews, I had to have it! All I can say is wow!! I was totally absorbed through the whole thing. I couldn’t put it down. The writing seemed effortless and each page was so powerful. She took so many different stories and tied them together to create a pure masterpiece. This is definitely a memorable story

This cover is gorgeous and the writing even more so. I need all her books now!!

It took me a little while to get into this book. It could have been because I just finished The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo😍 but now I am super excited. I enjoy all of the different gang elements and how ruthless it is. There are so many players and elements that I can’t wait to see what happens next!

More gorgeous covers and an all girl gang? Count me in

i received this from Netgalley and HarlequinTeen in exchange for my honest review. This book was so much fun! The gangs, especially the girl gang, omertàs, magical cards, all of it was so exciting. I have no idea who to trust at this point but I hope Enne and Levi’s groups finally come out ahead. I can’t wait for the next book

All in all, a great book week! I hope yours is the same😊

Wrap Up

Hi friends! It’s been awhile. I have quite a few books today since it’s been several weeks since I posted. I have been a little under the weather and just needed a break. I have been focusing on reading books I currently own as well as the ARCs I have and have made some good progress. I have missed you all and hope you are well.

Today’s run down

Another great book by Alexa! I was honored to get to read her next book Fumbled early and it was amazing. I love sports romance and This book had a wonderful heroine who had amazing friends. The football wives were awful and so was Chris. The romance was wonderful. My only complaint and I have heard this in a few reviews is the unnecessary overusage of hashtags. Her next book totally gets over the few hiccups of the first and if you haven’t read her books, get one ASAP.

I really enjoyed this book and the constant wavering Nova felt between the both groups of prodigies. Her feelings for Adrian were nice too. She just can’t decide which group she belongs to. It does end in a major cliffhanger. I look forward to book 3.

This book was confusing for me. I didn’t like it or not like it. It had an old time vibe to it and I couldn’t figure out if it was supposed to be a modern story or an old timey story. It was pretty depressing for the most part.

I adore all these books. I absolutely devour every book in this series and this was no exception. Summer and Fitz had so much chemistry. They each had things they needed to get over and I am so glad they did. I also enjoyed Brenna and am totally looking forward to her story next.

This was such a cute funny book. It kept me entertained throughout and the friend group she had was amazing. The romance was wonderful. It all came together perfectly!

I received this book from Netgalley and Tor/Forge in exchange for my honest review. This was a sweet summer romance and I enjoyed it. There was parental trouble, ex boyfriend trouble and health angst. But in the end, two people who deserved each other found love. I thought everything wrapped up very nicely

Hmm…well I adored the friends and her father. They were funny,charming and loyal. But the heroine…manipulative, selfish. And how horrible to use your mothers death to get what you want. She did it on every page. It bothered me so much I wanted to DNF and she literally almost caused her boyfriend to get hurt in a car wreck and drown because of her stunts

What are you reading?

I have just started The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Ace of Shades

Weekly Wrap Up

Rain, Rain its all I see! We have had rain here for so many days there is flooding. There are supposed to be 5-6 more inches coming. Looks like I shall be reading😊

Last week had 3 books:

I received an arc from Edelweiss and HarperCollins in exchange for my honest review.

I liked this book better than the first book. It had lots of action and I loved the HEA. Everyone grows up a lot. There is some violence in this book, but overall a pretty good read.

This was cute but maybe a little young for me. It was interesting to learn about a different culture and the romance was sweet. I was glad to see a somewhat happy ending

I received this ebook from Skyscape and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

Another great book by Rachel! Her stories and couples are always adorable and quirky. Mac and Slade were both running from their lives and ran right into each other. Slade was almost too big of a jerk to be redeemable at one point, but she did a great job of doing it. It wasn’t easy, but nothing worth it ever is. My only complaint is that it felt like maybe some pages were missing because some of the pages stopped mid sentence or word and the next page was something different.

So what are you reading?

Praying for rain to leave here.

See you soon

The Blood Prince: Review

I was honored to receive an ebook of The Blood Prince from the author in exchange for my honest review.

This book was very action packed. Emmy, the Queen, has become very withdrawn and dark since her return, because she wants to find her son. The majority of this book is spent with Cam and Felix searching for him. Julia changes and becomes very strong, while Claudia struggles to let go of her beliefs.

Cam finally falls in love with Felix and Julia falls in love with Lucas. Rufus is just as dreadful as he is in the other books😂

We find out more about the parents of the orphaned children and more and more of the Silvers become human.

This book is action packed from page 1 and has a great ending.

I hope you all would give it a try and if you have read any of the other books, please keep going. Josie creates a story unlike any other and really stands out from the crowd.

Last few Weeks Wrap Up

Hello lovelies! Looks like I am a little behind🙈 It has been super busy lately and only going to get busier the next few weeks. Everyone has been a little under the weather as well. I am ready for sunshine and warmer temps, but where I live you get snow, rain, record lows and record highs all in the same week😔

Oh well… without further ado

I received this ebook from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

This book was so intriguing. I really enjoyed watching Elenora go from a maid to a lady, as she was meant to be. The Cinderella vibe along with the spy part of it is very neat. I like the 2 love interests, esp Ferdy and did not predict the twist. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

It does end in a cliffhanger

Omg!!! I finally made myself read this as I couldn’t bear for it to end. Sarah proves why she is a queen in this genre with this book. I have never had a book make me laugh, cry and want to throw up on the same page.

I adore them all and am so proud of them. I will miss them so. If you have not read this series, what are you waiting for??? I would love to know your thoughts on Chaol as it seems people are very mixed on feelings for him. I personally like him.

The final book in this series. It was not my favorite of the four but I definitely enjoyed it and Tucker was such a good guy. Looking forward to the spinoff Briar U.

I read this as part of a buddy read with Noly and Shelly.

The first half of the book was ok for me. It felt like something was missing but still enjoyable. It really picks up in the last half with a twist I didn’t see coming. It went really fast through some major plot points, but I look forward to book 2

Ok that’s all for this time! See you soon

Weekly Wrap Up

Hi friends! I’m back again this week with a few new books to add. I even had a DNF😱 Photo credits to Goodreads

Another great book by Elle. I was so glad to see Dean as more than just a player. There is a lot of romance in this book, so be ready for it😂

So…this is my DNF. I tried to get in to this but I just couldn’t. Not my type of story.

I finished this book and it was so good! I will have a longer review on it closer to release day. Keep an eye out for it next month.

I really have no idea how to review this one. First, let me say the cover is gorgeous. This is not a story that you see around everywhere. It is very unique in its telling. It was a fast read and definitely entertaining. I just felt confused all the way through it. You don’t get to know any of the characters enough to understand their intentions and it makes it hard to stay interested. You never get to really know any of them.

Have you read any of these? Let me know your opinion!

Weekly Wrap Up

Hi! Finally getting around to my wrap up. I have been reading quite a bit, so I have a few for you.

I received this from Netgalley and Random House in exchange for my honest review.

When I first started reading, Sophie was one of the first authors I read. I still remember going to the bookstore and picking up her book.

I was super excited to read this, since it’s been awhile. But honestly, I was disappointed. The romance was ok, but overall there was too much going on and I just became bored. The uptight friends, the selfish sister, the mean brother. Everyone treated her bad and she was such a pushover. Not my favorite

Thank you to Edelweiss and HarperCollins for this in exchange for my honest review.

This has a super cute romance from 2 totally opposite people. The dog rescue was a nice touch too. Trigger…it mentions cutting quite a bit. That bothered me. I get it was part of the story but i didn’t like that.

5 star read

Thank you to Balzer + Bray (HarperCollins) and Edelweiss for this in exchange for my honest review.

C.J. creates a masterpiece with this one. I didn’t even realize it was a Cinderella retelling of sorts until the end. I adored the slow enemies to love romance with Blue and Prince Kellen. I felt so sorry for all the losses they had had and how sweet Kellen was with her. A perfect fairytale ending.

I hate that this story is ending, but whew what a long book. It made me happy that for the most part that all got a HEA, but it did make me sad with what Simon had to give up. It was especially sad how it affects the others but I have hope it will all be ok.

5 star read

Ok…I adored The Royals Elle wrote with Jen as Erin Watt, so I wanted to give this a try. And… I loved it. Garrett was amazing and I loved the romance with Hannah. They are such a fun couple. I absolutely devoured this story from beginning to end.

After reading The Deal, I jumped right into The Mistake. I couldn’t wait to read Logan’s story. Although, it wasn’t as good as Garrett and Hannah’s story, I still really enjoyed it. Watching Logan be tamed was an enjoyable read.
